My pleasure! I took about 150 pics, lol, it was so cool being in the very front for this. Being up close increases my enjoyment of a concert about 1000%. As an example, I was at the same venue for Bob dylan the week before, hanging with friends in the bar/hallway for most of the show, and the experience was so different as to be almost uncomparable. This concert easily vaulted to pretty high up there on my top ten list of best concerts ever seen just due to the neighborhood I was in.

And it didn't hurt that it was a great show.

Reviews I read were all positive except that some people thought the "Fuckin' Up" song went on too long. We didn't think so. I found it therapeutic :)

It's also great that the show was filmed - hopefully we can buy it on DVD some day.

What were the surprise/surprises you were referring to!? I didn't see anything I wasn't expecting, except for about 3 or 4 guys that looked like Jerry. I usually see them at DSO/Furthur/Phil/etc. shows.

Incredible show though. I got there a little late, but still caught most of Patti Smith, who was also very good. Neil hasn't lost a step on stage. His voice and especially his guitar playing are still top notch. He was clearly having a blast too, which was nice to see.

I agree that "Fuckin' Up" was a highlight. It did not go on too long. Only the ending of "Walk Like A Giant" went on too long. Everything else was perfect. I loved the opening jam into Love and Only Love. That song was perfectly executed. I was hoping for "Like A Hurricane" though. Encore was "Roll Another Number." The show was in Brooklyn. Maybe he figured Brooklyn didn't want to be reminded of the hurricane anymore.

Ramada Inn and Mr. Soul were highlights for me as well. The whole show was excellent though. So happy I got to catch the Horse, because I'm about 99% certain they will not tour together again. Buffalo Springfield may very well be his next "reunion" project though. That, I would be happy about.

Oh, well, if he didn't do the Hurricane song, that's part of what I was referring to - the stage show around that was ... interesting. A little weird, but of course that's Neil. Did you have the weird doll thing floating around the stage? We finally realized it was supposed to BE the hurricane, and that things had been sort of ... windy, throughout. The hurricane was a theme throughout. So maybe he didn't do all that stuff in your show. Yes, he opened with Love and Only Love at ours too, it was great.
I think you're right this is it for Crazy Horse. What a great time.

I'm sure Jerry was there :) Deadheads will never actually accept that Jerry is gone, until we're all gone, too.

Sounds like he did away with the whole hurricane theme for the Brooklyn show. No weird floating dolls either. That's alright though, I got to see an incredible version of that song last time I saw him, and I'm just happy I got to see him with Crazy Horse.

One observation I had about this show, is it had the most civilized crowd I can remember at a show since I saw Simon and Garfunkel in 2006 (which seemed to be all folks in their 60s). That was nice, because it made it easier to focus on just the music.

“Deadheads will never actually accept that Jerry is gone, until we're all gone, too.”
Nonsense! Are you implying that one day Deadheads will be gone? Jerry's presence will ALWAYS be felt, until the end of time.
